  1. secx - √2 = 0
    secx = √2
    x = π/4

    If this gave you trouble, it looks like you need to review your basic trig functions and common triangles.

    How do I find the critical values? y= 4/x + tan(πx/8) What I did is I simplified it to y= 4x^-1 + tan(πx/8) then I took the derivative y'= -4x^-2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2 Then I simplied it y'= -4/x^2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2 then I

    i need to integrate: (secx)^4 dx let u = sec x dv =sec^3 x dx Start with this. Then, you will have to deal with the integral of sec. You should be able to solve it after a few steps. Looks a little messy.
